ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR APPEARING IN JEE (ADVANCED) 2015
A candidate, including a foreign national, must fulfill each and every one of the
following five criteria to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2015.
Criterion 1 – Performance in JEE (Main) 2015: The candidate should be among
the top 1,50,000 (all categories included) in JEE (Main) 2015. The percentages
of the total number of candidates for various categories are as follows:
50.5% for GEN (from the common merit list), 27% for OBCNCL, 15% for SC and 7.5% for ST. Within each of these four
categories, 3% horizontal reservation is available for PwD
The category-wise distribution of the number of “top” candidates is shown in
the following table:

Criterion 2 – Age limit: The candidate should have been born on or after
October 1, 1990 if belonging to the GEN or OBC-NCL category and on or after
October 1, 1985 if belonging to the SC, ST or PwD category.
Criterion 3 – Number of attempts: A candidate can attempt JEE (Advanced) a
maximum of two times and that too in consecutive years. Therefore, JEE
(Advanced) 2015 should be either the candidate’s FIRST attempt OR the
SECOND consecutive attempt.
Criterion 4 – Appearance in Class XII (or equivalent) examination: The
candidate should have appeared for the Class XII (or equivalent) examination
for the first time in all the subjects in either 2014 or 2015.
Candidates who appeared for the Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2014
and wish to re-appear for the same in 2015 (either for improvement or
because they failed in one or more subjects), will have to re-appear in all the
subjects in 2015.
Those who appeared for the first time in their Class XII (or equivalent)
examination in 2013 or earlier are NOT eligible. However, candidates whose
Class XII (or equivalent) examination Board results for the academic year 201213 were declared after June 2013 are eligible to appear for JEE (Advanced)
Criterion 5 – Earlier admission at IITs/ISM: The candidate should NOT have
taken admission (irrespective of whether or not he/she continued in the
program) OR even accepted admission by paying admission fee at any of the
IITs or ISM in the past; even candidates whose admission was cancelled are
NOT eligible. However, candidates who have been admitted to a preparatory
course in any of the IITs in 2014 can appear for JEE (Advanced) 2015.
